If you follow me on Instagram (@Genuinely_AA) then you know that I recently went to Miami to celebrate my best friend's 21st birthday! It was a weekend trip and everything happened so quickly, I could only hope to get pictures fast enough to document it for the blog. After our flight we made our way to our home away from home at the Mondrian Hotel located in South Beach. It is so beautiful there and the decor is perfect for any getaway (pictures coming soon!). We wanted to take advantage of each night so Amirra decided she wanted to get her makeup done by MAC, which was a great choice of course. We ended up with Eddy Delapena as our MUA for the night and he was the greatest!

          Amirra wanted something glam that still looked natural. She isn't used to wearing a full face of makeup and has a fear of looking too caked up. Eddy did a great job and meeting all her needs and making her feel comfortable explaining all the products and his technique along the way.

           We laughed and joked through the appointment about his favorite aspects of Miami and how he feels the city has changed over the years.

Are you from Miami?

Yes, born and raised! Miami has changed so much over the years though. In the past 8 years I would say the city has become and international door for a lot of different people and cultures. I love my hometown but I miss it when it was a little more quiet.

          Amirra loved the smokey eye that he gave her Friday so much that she made another appointment for Saturday! Eddy really helped us with our trip by not only providing the birthday girl with a glam look but also helping us with food suggestions (I am a foodie) and nightlife. So happy we crossed paths! If you ever need your face done for any occasion while in Miami follow him on Instagram @eddymunster , and pay him a visit at the MAC store located in Lincoln Rd. Mall!

Thank you Eddy for everything you helped make her birthday weekend the greatest!
